|3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ||Faculty Reads: The Slow Professor|
Faculty Reads is a book club initiative that brings together faculty members and other interested members of our community to read and discuss notable books with a specific bearing on our teaching, research and institutional environment.
Register for the event.
In The Slow Professor, Maggie Berg and Barbara K. Seeber discuss how adopting the principles of the Slow movement in academic life can counter this erosion of humanistic education. Focusing on the individual faculty member and his or her own professional practice, Berg and Seeber present both an analysis of the culture of speed in the academy and ways of alleviating stress while improving teaching, research, and collegiality. The Slow Professor will be a must-read for anyone in academia concerned about the frantic pace of contemporary university life.
|5:00 PM - 6:00 PM ||Open Door service|
Everyone is welcome to join us for our worship service. Various themes and special guests, often from Laurier's Faculty of Music, throughout the term. Open-table communion.

|7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ||The Human Cost of War: Soldiers and Psychiatrists in Korea, 1950–53|
Meghan Fitzpatrick will investigate the human impact of the ‘forgotten’ Korean War (1950–53) in examining how the Commonwealth cared for the psychologically wounded in theatre and assess how successful doctors were in returning servicemen to duty. She will then speak about the challenges veterans faced in accessing compensation, and reflect upon how the Korean War can inform contemporary policy and underline salutary lessons for the future.
